  Famous people of Rome

He grew up in Rione Borgo, after being baptized in San Pietro. No one can be considered more Roman than Renato! He was Renato Ranucci but when he had to choose a stage name, he chose Rachel, as the name of a very popular powder in those days. It was the Thirties. After he took the Italianized name of "Rascele" in compliance with the directives issued by Achille Starace on behalf of the Fascist regime.
